Death has again entered our midst and taken for its victim a beloved wife and mother, Mrs. Katharine Charters, aged sixty four years. She was sick only about twenty two hours.  We can hardly realize that she is gone. She was a member of the Waynetown Baptist Church and was a noble Christian woman, bearing intense suffering with patience, only waiting for the hour when her dear Lord should come for her. He was with her every moment of her illness, and when the earth receded from her and the bars of death were lifted for her passage through, He never left her. Time was when she was alive upon the earth and active amid its busy scenes; she had her joys and her sorrows. She has gone. She has closed her eyes on the visionary scenes of time, but has opened them amid the solemn realties of eternity and has entered upon that life which shall never end. Her feet have passed up the flowery path beyond and stand secure within the pearly gates. To die then is but to live. Our continuance on earth is but for a short time. Let us trust that our future life, though short it may be, will be made brighter by the glimpse of heaven through our departed loved one, and when it has come our time to lay aside our weather beaten form, and He shall call us we hope to greet thee beyond this weary world where there is no tearful parting.  She leaves a husband and seven children. - s
